The CREW UT virtual February lunch and learn featured a project spotlight of the University of Utah’s Impact, Health, and Prosperity Center for the Eccles School of Business. A project underway, the Impact, Health, and Prosperity Center will be a new multidisciplinary hub for social impact, community engagement and enterprise, and entrepreneurial empowerment. The event’s speaker, Peggy McDonough, is the President of MHTN Architects and principal-in-charge of the project.
Peggy shared insight to the design process and spatial attributes influencing the project, as well as discussed the site challenges her team faced in the early stages. Among other topics, Peggy shared the project’s possible concepts and the strategy behind the decision-making. Peggy’s visual overview effectively detailed the project’s key features while simultaneously offering a general window to the innerworkings of the design process.
The Impact, Health, and Prosperity Center will foster a growing network of social impact practitioners and act as a nerve center that equips them with knowledge, experience, and vision required to change the world. Peggy’s experience and dedication to the holistic integration of design, service, education, and leadership will contribute to the project’s success.
